School PartnersAre you an L.A County educator interested in bringing our careers media program to your school?
Gigniks partners with schools to bring our semester-long program to high-need communities in Los Angeles County. We have served over 200 students in four schools; their video content is used as the basis for individual research and class discussion around careers and career pathways in schools across the state.

Corporate PartnersGigniks' model is built around partnerships with employers in our community.
A program sponsorship offers not only education outreach, professional-quality video content and recruiting benefits, but also the opportunity to demonstrate a commitment to diversity and gender equality.
$600 supports instruction and production for one student per program, with a typical class of 20-30 students producing 7-10 career profiles. You can also donate directly to Gigniks, or launch a Corporate Matching Program at your company.
Gigniks is a Los Angeles based non-profit that provides the tools for high school students to build their own career channel. We partner a school with a local employer sponsor, bring in USC film graduates to teach a year-long video production elective, then take participants into the sponsor's workplace in small groups to shoot a series of engaging 3-minute profiles of their employees. Participants upload the edited videos to selected educational platforms and share them with their friends on social media. As users explore these career paths, they are inspired to think more creatively about the future and gain a stronger appreciation for the relevance of their education.
